Police responded to Barber Masters, 643 Broadway, on Oct. 22, on the report of a burglary. Employees had come into work and noticed bare walls where framed jerseys and pictures normally hung while customers received their haircuts.

After a thorough investigation, which included viewing surveillance footage from the shop, members of the Saugus Police Criminal Investigations Division recovered the stolen property on Nov. 13. The items are estimated to be worth $5,500.

“We were happy to assist in returning these coveted items to their rightful owner to bring back the Boston sports atmosphere at this barbershop,” Chief DiMella said. “Our investigation into the theft remains open and ongoing, but charges are forthcoming.”

A suspect has been identified and charges will be sought in Lynn District Court. However, due to the ongoing investigation, no further information is available at this time.
